Palm Beach Opera mourns the passing of Gladys Benenson.

Gladys Benenson

Gladys Benenson joined the opera family in 1994 and started serving as a Board member in the same year. As a Vice-President on the Executive Committee for the past 10 years, Gladys provided immense leadership and support, and was instrumental in creating the recent organizational success.

Gladys and her late husband Edward H. “Eddie” Benenson shared a passion for opera and enjoyed performances all over the world. After having sponsored a prize at the Palm Beach Opera Vocal Competition for many years, Gladys Benenson turned her childhood love of singing into providing training for emerging artists and established the Benenson Young Artist Program in loving memory of Eddie Benenson. During a five-month residency at Palm Beach Opera, the Benenson Young Artists develop and polish essential stagecraft and performance skills, aided by musical and career guidance from Palm Beach Opera’s experienced artistic staff. Graduates of the Benenson Young Artist Program have gone on to successful careers singing in major opera houses in the US and abroad, including The Metropolitan Opera.

Gladys Benenson was a most refined and elegant lady, with a wonderful sense of humor, and was determined to make a difference in the lives of young singers. Palm Beach Opera is deeply grateful to Gladys for her 25 years of dedicated service and leadership on the Board, and will miss her greatly.

Gladys’ family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, friends consider making a contribution in her memory to the Benenson Young Artist Program. If you wish to join her mission, you may make a memorial contribution by clicking here.

The Palm Beach Opera Board and Staff extend their sincerest condolences to  Gladys Benenson’s family.
